Harambee Stars defender David Ochieng is confident of making a return to competitive action in January.

This is after the Harambee Stars centre back was again left without a club for the second time inside a year, after the disbanment of New York Cosmos earlier this month.

The American club folded owing to financial constraints according to reports in sections of the media, a development the Kenya international nicknamed “Cheche” confirmed during an interview on NTV on Friday.

“We knew there was a problem within the team for sometime but there was no need to make it public or even panic.”

“And then it happened. Immediately after we won the league, the management told us they were tearing up our contracts because there was no money,” said Ochieng.

He added: “I am calm and relaxed. I had a meeting with my agent and he’s told me to enjoy my holiday as he works on getting me a club. He is a good and reliable person, and I believe him”.

Cheche had been without a club for six months last year after he quit Saudi Arabia side Al Tawoon.

He has since been linked with a number of teams in Sweden and Denmark.
